How is OutSail free?

OutSail pioneered the vendor broker model

OutSail's "Always Free" Promise

How it works and how we avoid bias

When I left the world of software sales to come start OutSail, one of my core beliefs was that OutSail should be free to HR teams.

And while being free is great, being trusted is even better. So we think it's important to be upfront about how we get paid:

If you decide to buy from a vendor that OutSail recommends, that vendor owes us a small fee for making the introduction.

Here's what you need to know:

No hidden fees. Vendors do not pass this cost along to you. Instead, it comes from their sales & marketing budget.

No preferred vendors. Only 2 vendors out of 120 haven't agreed to this fee. And we still recommend those two if they're a good fit for a client.

Satisfaction guarantee. If you're unhappy with a purchase that we recommended, we will give our introduction bonus to you to help with your next purchase.
